Randy Osborn went downstate to put his poor mother in hospice. He has worked in the woods all his life and has always left his chainsaw on the job including the 35 years he has lived here. Some ingratious bastard stole his saw while he was away, his own personal property worth $1300. dollars! If anyone hears ANYTHING in this regard please call the Sheriff or Randy at 2687. What a despicable act............

Sad that the times are a changing Sad If the person who stole Randy's saw is caught, contact me and I'll use the saw to trim the "bastard's" limbs Rolling Eyes A good lesson learned. Shocked Hopefully it is a mistake and the saw will be returned. Surprised

Chainsaw was taken by a young man who thought it was abandoned! Despite the fact there were freshly cut trees all around! He found it too heavy to carry, set it down and went home only to forget where it was! All well that ends well! Friday evening at 6:45 Randy's mother passed away, funeral this Wednesday. If you see him a kind word or a pat, I'm sure, would be nice!

Special thanks to Deputy Douglas Edgar who interceded in the search for the chainsaw. He helped to quietly resolve the matter.

I'm glad it was found. Were there consequences for this person? I hope this isn't the start of things to come.
